PuroClean of South Reno‘s Emergency Water Damage Restoration Services

The Water Removal Process

  1. The first thing our technicians will do is remove damaged materials that will either be restored or discarded. These materials include baseboards, insulation, furniture, upholstery, carpeting, carpet padding, fragile wood, drywall, and more. 
  2. After the damaged items are removed, we begin drying out the water and disinfecting the affected areas. Specialized tools like air movers and dehumidifiers are typically used in the drying process. 
  3. Our technicians will then handle mold damage in the restoration process. Mold-infected surfaces will be disinfected and restored as quickly as possible to prevent it from spreading.

South Reno Emergency Water Extraction

We begin by extracting any standing water found in your home or business using high-grade equipment, strategically placed to remove water from the area.

  1. The first step requires immediate water removal through our advanced pumping machines. Once the water has been extracted, all affected belongings and structures will be removed and stored or discarded.
  2. Once completed, the equipment will be removed and the water will be discarded elsewhere by PuroClean’s technicians. 

Drying & Dehumidification

Once all areas requiring this process have been identified, the areas are isolated and prepped for drying and dehumidification. 

  1. Removal of belongings and upholstery will be necessary to ensure that the process can be thoroughly completed.
  2. When ready, the PuroClean technician will place air moving machines around the isolated area. Keep in mind that these machines are loud. The fans will be focusing on areas of the house or business that contain moisture to pull out any trapped water. 
  3. Next, the water will be pulled into the air and the fans as they go through the dehumidification process. All of the water pulled out will be disposed of by the PuroClean technician in another location.
  4. To ensure that everything is drying, a PuroClean technician will monitor moisture levels. Once moisture levels are normal, any removed items will be placed back to their original locations.

Carpet Restoration

Carpet restoration is the process that PuroClean uses to take your damaged carpet and restore it to its previous state.

  1. The first step is to find the source of the water damage as this determines whether or not your carpet is salvageable. 
  2. If the findings of step one show that the carpet is salvageable, any remaining water is removed through water extraction. 
  3. Then, high-grade air-moving fans will be used to remove the moisture from the carpet to prevent mold growth. 
  4. PuroClean technicians will keep you and your insurance agent updated during the drying process. 
  5. Once the carpet is dry, all equipment will be removed from the area, and all belongings will be put back into place.

Carpet Cleaning, Deodorization & Spot Removal

Any carpet that has been affected by water damage is subject to mildew being formed, which can cause an odor to spread not only in the affected room but throughout the entire home or office. Any such odors can be removed from your carpet with proper cleaning, deodorization, and/or spot removal.

  1. Our technician will begin with a complete inspection and vacuuming of your carpet. 
  2. Then, your furniture will be removed to repair your carpet.
  3. Should the need arise, a spot and pet odor treatment will be done.
  4. Available fiber or textile protection is also available, which will protect and prolong the value of your carpet.

Mold Removal

We at PuroClean of South Reno will tend to your mold damage and ensure your home or business is fully restored by following a strict process that involves the following. Please note that getting a professional on-site quickly to address water damage is essential to preventing mold growth.  

  1. We will start by performing a mold assessment, delicately inspecting your property for signs of mold. Then we’ll conduct a full mold removal, where we thoroughly remove the mold from the site.
  2. After all the mold is removed, we will deodorize the site. Deodorization includes cleaning and sanitizing the structure, fixtures, and content.

We will then use HEPA Air Filtration and HEPA Vacuuming equipment to evaporate water and eliminate moisture.

What to do

  • Prop Up Upholstery: Remove all loose cushions and prop up upholstered furniture. 
  • Manage Area Rugs and Obstacles: Remove rugs and pick up any items that may be sitting on the floor.

Does homeowners insurance cover flooding or water damage? Do you work with insurance companies to minimize the cost and hassle?
Homeowners insurance provides coverage for damage that is sudden and accidental (such as water heater ruptures or pipe bursts). However, flood damage, no matter the source of the water, is NOT covered by standard homeowners’ policies. Also, the water damage that results from a lack of maintenance is not covered on a standard homeowner’s insurance policy.
